This novel is incredible in the genre of historical fiction because you know what should have happened but everything is different. There are many alternate history books for adults but shockingly few for teens. Every charactor you meet is intriguing, with many layers and motives. But the most exciting charactors are the historical figures such as Ben Franklin. This book is full of turns you cannot see coming simply because you know that's not what really happened. I highly recommend this book for students of American History, people who enjoy to speculate, or people who simply enjoy a fascinating story.
If you are an alternate history buff, this book is for you. With an intense pace and plot, as well as excellent character development this what if book will have you from page one. A very entertaining read, but don't take my word for it pick it up for yourself.
